Mark Halsey has admitted he was wrong to disallow Michael Tonge's goal.Mark Halsey has informed Sheffield United manager Neil Warnock that he was wrong to disallow Michael Tonge's second goal on Saturday.
With The Blades leading 2-0 at Millmoor against Rotherham on Saturday, Tonge collected his own through ball and fired past Mike Pollitt.
However, Andy Gray was in an offside position and the goal was disallowed by referee Halsey despite the forward not interfering with play.
The decision proved vital with The Millers going on to net two goals of their own and bag a share of the spoils.
"Mark called me and admitted that he was wrong to disallow the goal," said Warnock to The Star.
"He told me he'd watched the video at home and thought that play should have been allowed to develop further to see what happened."
Meanwhile, United have been linked with a move for Brighton's 28-year-old defender Danny Cullip, who has played for Fulham and Brentford.
Warnock is keen to bolster his defensive ranks as he plots a promotion assault.
"Danny is one of a number of players we are looking at," said Warnock to the club's official website.
"I don't like revealing names of the players I'm after but I haven't placed any bids at the moment."
